"We have to love until it hurts. It is not enough to say, I love." We must put that love into a living action, and how do we do that? By giving until it hurts." Mother Teresa

By now all 8 of my readers are on pinterest. I am like most people in that I pin things thinking "I can totally do that" but then never get to it. Well this year I have actually attempted several but ran into several hiccups along the way that made the project a no go.  Most of these were gardening ideas that would have worked if I had a way to constantly water them. My dad and I spent several hours at Lowes trying to make it work. 

I really enjoy spending time on projects with my dad trying to trouble shoot problems to make something work. Once he said that he could drill through my townhouses brick wall to make a power supply I had to say no. I am a renter after all. :)

So I have decided to make a resolution of sorts when it come to pinning.  I am going to try one craft project a month. I cannot commit to one a week-that would involve  more money than I am willing to spend.  I have no real crafting supplies, and I don't want to buy a lot of things for a one time craft. 

I have made recipe off of my Pinterest boards before.  I am making this one right now-literally right now it is in the oven: http://www.sixsistersstuff.com/2011/10/cheesy-enchilada-casserole.html It smells delish. I am sure it will be. I have made enough things to know when something sounds like it will work out, or will taste like crap.  

Here is my craft goal for this month: http://www.makeitandfakeit.com/2012/04/diy-wrap-bracelet.html

I think it looks pretty idiot proof. I will post pics if I remember to post ;) 

PS: this past week I have entered what I am calling the "twilight of my 20's". (I stole it from a friend). One of my goals is to blog more than once every nine months. *Fingers crossed* that it works. 

I leave my readers with an adorable pic of my baby-seriously look at those puppy eyes
